Elite Dangerous: Odyssey Console Delayed

Elite Dangerous: Odyssey
The release has been postponed due to numerous problems with the PC version of the game.

The release of Elite Dangerous: Odyssey on consoles has been postponed indefinitely. The developers said that they will focus their efforts on fixing existing bugs.

Frontier Developments announcement stems from the many bugs that PC players encountered immediately after release. The main reason for the errors gamers call optimization, which is not saved by the fascinating plot and the vast universe of Odyssey. The head of Frontier Developments, in his message to players, emphasized that the console version of the game will not be released until the bugs are fixed, so global improvements await the PC version. As the developers promise, players are waiting for "monthly updates", which will be designed to optimize the work of Elite Dangerous: Odyssey on computers and only after that, the game may appear on other platforms. However, the developers did not report any exact dates.

Recall that the Elite series began back in 1984 and has become one of the best games in the genre of space simulations. Part 4, Elite Dangerous was released in 2014, gaining good reviews from critics. The Odyssey update added many new locations, as well as the ability to hike - however, the developers were too rushed with the release, not having time to work with bugs. Frontier Developments has already apologized to gamers, but the latest patch still hasn't improved the game's optimization. Elite Dangerous is available for download on all gaming platforms, however Odyssey is still only available to play on PC.
